It came as a surprise to some people, but one of the highest priorities after the storm was to get the greens mowed. Why was this urgent? Well, after last week's aerification, we applied liquid fertilizer to get the greens growing and help fill the holes in. With the hurricane, we obviously couldn't cut the greens on Monday, but we didn't want to let two days pass without mowing them, as this could set back the recovery from aerification. So, when we arrived Tuesday morning, we blew off the debris and mowed the greens.
About half the golf course crew was able to make it in on Tuesday to begin the cleanup. For some, this meant leaving the cleanup at their home until later, and their efforts on behalf of the Club are certainly appreciated.
